Dr Ula Heywood

Dr Ula Heywood

Over the last twelve years, in addition to my work as an Emergency Medicine Specialist and Pre-Hospital Retrieval doctor with Westpac Rescue Helicopters, I have had a deep interest in preventative health and wellness, particularly the role that nutrition, sleep, exercise, and mindfulness play.

My goal is to provide clarity around the truly individual path to health, enabling people to maximise their quality of life and to reach their full health potential.

I am pleased to also join the team at Green Doctors to support a new approach to dealing with common ailments such as pain, anxiety, inflammation, and sleep disturbance with medicinal cannabis. It is a pleasure to see such positive results in people trying this relatively newly available medicine and working collaboratively with their GP’s and hospital specialists to improve their quality of life.
